Why Don't You Do Right?

Album: Golden Age of Swing: Twenty Greatest Hits (1942)
  • You had a plenty money 1922
    You let other women make a fool of you

    Why don't you do right
    Like some other men do?
    Get out of here and get me some money too?

    You're sitting down wondering what it's all about
    You ain't got no money they will put you out

    Why don't you do right
    Like some other men do?
    Get out of here and get me some money too?

    If you had prepared twenty years ago
    You wouldn't be a-wanderin' now from door to door

    Why don't you do right
    Like some other men do?
    Get out of here and get me some money too?

    I fell for you jiving and I took you in
    Now all you've got to offer me is a drink of gin

    Why don't you do right
    Like some other men do?
    Get out of here and get me some money too?

    Why don't you do right
    Like some other men do?
    Like some other men do? Writer/s: LILLIAN GREEN
